“If there is any magic in this world, it must be in the attempt of understanding someone, sharing something…… the answer must be in the attempt” –Celine, Before Sunrise (1995)
I am a curiosity-driven science enthusiast who strongly believes in the magic of attempts and mistakes. I am just fascinated by the realm of biology whether it’s simple diffusion within the cell or the complex mechanisms of the brain. I am amazed by the fact that when applied practically, science has the potential to change millions of lives with just one thought, one experiment, and/or one equation! It is my dream to be a channel for those changes through my passion for science.
When I was in middle school, science used to be dreadful to me and I used to think I will never be able to grasp the concepts. But as soon as I stepped into a new high school, I started to love science and it didn’t take me long to figure out that it was all about the way the concepts were communicated by my amazing teachers that made all the difference. They were able to make me see how science connected to my everyday life and how important, creative and simple it was. This is the reason why science communication is so important; it has the power to open the eyes of people to a new world of possibilities and wonder. I know how explaining one concept differently can alter the way an individual views science. Thus, I feel that the way you communicate a topic in science is as important as the topic itself!
I am interested in science communication because it will allow me to share what I have learnt with a wide audience. I want to combat the oceans of misinformation, stigma and fake news going in the world about science and there is no better way to do that than to communicate what science really is!
People can expect a very fresh outlook on science from my articles. I am going to talk about the application of science on topics they could never imagine and open their eyes to something new every time. My articles are also going to go around how science affects our society and vice versa to give a more holistic view of the subject. It will also open the eyes of the reader to the previously unknown horizons of life sciences and I am sure it will be one hell of a journey to be on!
